Gemma scored a load of samphire. (Sea Asparagus, or Salicornia virginica, as you know.) so we had it with a bunch of shark steaks we had knocking around.
I say "knocking around" in as much as anyone ever has shark knocking around.
Anyway, samphire is my new favourite thing. It's the only vegetable that comes pre-salted.
(You'll be relieved to learn that there is a forum where you can discuss your urgent samphire issues over here)
UPDATE AUGUST 2008. So this is like the most popular aea asparagus image on the entire internets. We live in strange times.
